If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Dee, that fabric is exactly where you put it so you'd know exactly where it was.

Dee, good luck with your fair items. I'm sure you've done well.

Moving day 4 days away!

I should go to fair tonight and see how my 'things' have done .. but I just want to sit here.  Last night I did some repair on my fav quilt with stitching popping (it is over 10 yrs old) and found I need to do some applique over a thin spot.  Now I save all my fabric from a project for just this reason. I know exactly what kind of package it is in. But do you think I can put my fingers on it right now?  With bringing that bookcase home and reorganizing, I emptied that box. But I cannot for the life of me remember where it is .. at all .. hahahaha

Here's Willow ~ same style, different with a pink center, points and name all same fabric .. and two grays for the border and two points … will take some pix of my items possibly tomorrow since I cannot seem to get motivated to move .. at all.  Exile is playing tonight and I wanted to go... maybe if I sit outside I will be able to hear them  lol

Barbara, l do prefer " mercerized cotton" over plain.

Riana the plyester thread I was using was fraying and I also thought that would be the better choice, stronger etc... and for some reason the knotts were not tight enough to stay. I will try a good cotton and maybe look for a better poly. I did end up getting the Qnique 15R. It was at a terriffic buy. Nancy's said they were selling like hot cakes. I looked one over first and checked out some of the other at Nancy's. They had the Cornet I saw and also checked out on Youtube. Didn't like how it  bunched up fabric. I bought Angela Walters rulers and a few others from HQ. I've been watching a lot of yt vidoes on using a long arm and thanks for the tip about the long arm group and mounting, rollers and tensions. I'm doing my raffle quilt with a walking foot on my Unity,nearing the end.  Thanks so much.

Barbara, how exciting! Which one did you get? Please join the longarm group and read all the back much info on there on quilting with a moving machine on a frame ( bit of a learning curve on the mounting & roller tensions etc.) I don't care to use cotton much unless looking for special colour or texture...too linty, and at high speed, it breaks easier than polyester.

I purchased two spools of thread from Superior cotton thread. One 40weight and one 50 weight. Just to see what they would be like for quilting and piecing. Costly!! they better be good!!

Love the Bee's, Love the socks.

My midarm showed up at the door. Now to put the frame together. Still working on my raffle quilt. I wish I did it with all cotton thread. To late. I'm half way through the quilting. Better get busy, times going by fast.

I was working on a long time knitting project, ( sweater) last week on a road trip w/ grandson...we took him to a Yugio ( card game) tournament. I think that sweater is about half way now. You gals with the sox are way speedier than l, lol! Bought a set of 3 oval quilting rulers at a shop along the way & have been playing with them :)

Really nice socks, Mary!
